Anna and I recently painted our house. I spent 65 hours on an extension ladder operating a power washer and paint sprayer – though not at the same time. It was a lot of work, and cost a very pretty penny. But we’re done now and it looks much better than before.

A guy down the street recently painted his house also. He probably spent 150 hours on an extension ladder though because he scraped and rolled. Yet the color he chose someone else is going to have to paint over as soon as they move in: Neon Lime Green.
